SEN & Disabilities

Welcome to the Bobby Moore Academy Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) section of our website. At Bobby Moore, we believe that there are four key features of Inclusion: Present, Participating, Supporting and Achieving.


  • All pupils should learn in environments which best meet their needs.
  • All pupils should be fully engaged in the school community.


  • All pupils should be enabled and supported to fully participate in their learning.
  • All pupils should feel that their voices are heard.
  • All pupils have the right to participate and engage as fully as possible in all aspects of school, including co-curricular and offsite opportunities.


  • All pupils should benefit from inclusive learning and teaching practices.
  • All pupils should be given the right help, at the right time, from the right people to support their wellbeing in the right place.
  • All pupils should be supported to overcome barriers to learning in order to achieve their full potential.
  • All pupils should be supported to participate in all parts of school life.


  • All pupils should be achieving their full potential.
  • All pupils should have access to a varied curriculum tailored to meet their needs.
  • All pupils should leave Bobby Moore equipped with the skills to succeed and reach their potential, as well as being well-rounded individuals, with a strong sense of self and accomplishment.
